Fracture of tibial plateau NOS ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code S82.121B [convert to ICD-9-CM] Displaced fracture of lateral condyle of right tibia, initial encounter for open fracture type I or II Disp fx of lateral condyle of r tibia, 7thB; Open fracture of right lateral tibial plateau; Open right tibia lateral plateau (lower leg bone) fracture
Bicondylar fracture of tibia. S82.14 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail. The 2019 edition of ICD-10-CM S82.14 became effective on October 1, 2018. This is the American ICD-10-CM version of S82.14 - other international versions of ICD-10 S82.14 may differ.
Closed fracture of upper end of tibia alone. Short description: Fx upper end tibia-close. ICD-9-CM 823.00 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 823.00 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or before September 30, 2015.
S82.142A is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. Short description: Displaced bicondylar fracture of left tibia, init. The 2020 edition of ICD-10-CM S82.142A became effective on October 1, 2019.
Unspecified fracture of upper end of unspecified tibia, initial encounter for closed fracture. S82. 109A is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM S82.
ICD-9 code 823.3 for Fracture of shaft of tibia and fibula open is a medical classification as listed by WHO under the range -FRACTURE OF LOWER LIMB (820-829).
In a medial tibial plateau fracture, a split or depressed component occurs, which is usually the result of a high energy injury and involves a strong force loading at the knee. Occurring in 10% of all tibial plateau fractures, this type has a high risk of damage to the the popliteal artery and peroneal nerve.
Fracture of lower end of tibia ICD-10-CM S82. 302A is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v39.0):
'When both the tibia and fibula are fractured, the index directs the clinical coder to assign a combined code. The exclusion at 'S82. 31 Fracture of lower end of tibia with fracture of fibula (any part)' directs the coder to 'S82.
2022 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code S82. 832A: Other fracture of upper and lower end of left fibula, initial encounter for closed fracture.
Bicondylar tibial plateau fractures often have bone defects due to compression of the cancellous subchondral bone. After reduction of the articular fragments, options for filling the metaphyseal bone defects include iliac crest autograft, allograft and bone substitutes such as calcium phosphate and hydroxyapatite.
The tibial plateau is the flat top portion of your tibia bone, which runs from your knee to your ankle. The bottom end of your thigh bone (femur) and the top end of your tibia form your knee joint. The tibial plateau is a relatively flat surface of bone covered in cartilage.
The tibial plateau is a bony surface on the top of the lower leg (shin) bone that connects with the thigh bone (femur). The medial tibial plateau is the surface on the side corresponding to your big toe, whereas the lateral tibial plateau is on the side corresponding to your pinky toe.
S82. 201A - Unspecified fracture of shaft of right tibia [initial encounter for closed fracture]. ICD-10-CM.
Distal Tibial Fractures This is a fracture in the metaphysis, the part of tibia before it reaches its widest point. These fractures are usually transverse (across) or oblique (slanted) breaks in the bone. Distal tibial metaphyseal fractures usually heal well after setting them without surgery and applying a cast.
The distal tibia, distal fibula, and talus articulate to form the bony structure of the ankle joint. The distal tibial articular surface, also known as the tibial plafond, is a quadrilateral surface that is wider anteriorly. 1–4. This surface is concave in the sagittal plane and slightly convex in the transverse plane.
We conclude that there is significant impairment of movement and muscle function after fracture of the tibial plateau and that the majority of patients have not fully recovered one year after injury. Loss of movement and reduced muscle function affects recovery after intra-articular fractures.
In summary, tibial plateau fractures are serious injuries, usually associated with soft-tissue complications. Staged treatment is recommended in severe cases. Minimally-invasive osteosynthesis, when possible, is recommended in partial articular fractures.
If you had surgery for your tibial plateau fracture, you can put a little bit of weight on the leg after 6 weeks with the goal of walking normally by the 10th week. If you did not have surgery for your tibial plateau fracture, you can start walking safely with a knee brace in 4-6 weeks.
Non-displaced tibial plateau fractures take up to 3-4 months without surgery to heal. When surgery is required these cases take around 4 months to heal.
